The Colors of Curiosity

A kitten’s proclivity

to curiosity

comes in shades of tabby

black, brown, gray, white

some tall and some small

all hunters at night

curiosity

gleams in their agate eyes

multi-colored felines

who like to fraternize

curiosity

in every slinky movement

nothing is left unexplored

or spared their amusement

Great Balls of Fur!

they gather under couches and chairs

little balls composed of cat hairs

people everywhere concur

all pet homes have balls of fur

the only way to make them go away

is to vacuum everyday

if you love animals that’s okay

and a very small price to pay

Kittens and Acrobats

here’s to death-defying kitties many skills

rivaling acrobats with their physical thrills

cartwheels off of couches and tables

are one of a kitten’s acrobatic stables

acrobats who do aerial stunts on a highwire

have nothing on kittens always willing to go higher

and when it comes to cute, kittens rule

although acrobats are also supercool
